    I have been working at Waltham Services

    Pros

    Well run division provides solid career opportunities to sales and service professionals.

    Cons

    There still remains an element of entitlement mentality "old guard" employees who feel they are owed a paycheck whether they perform or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the GREAT work of performance management and holding ALL employees accountable. We are almost there!

    I have been working at Waltham Services

    Pros

    Technicians are able to work independently and the company usually has the tools, chemicals and other supplies to do the job properly.

    Cons

    The company is loaded with incompetent supervisors, middle and upper management born out of nepotism. None of these people earned their positions on their own merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management - Rollins, LLC - is to clean house of these incompetent people and start from scratch.

    Pros

    The company offers independence, technical support and supplies when needed. There is access to entomologists. They also accommodate people when they need time off.

    Cons

    Their appointment scheduling and routes is a nightmare.There is never enough time to do the job right. They are always short of help and push those who are there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many friends and friends of friends in the company who are non producers or just incompetent. The lack of accountability is amazing.

    Pros

    Waltham provides great training and benefits compared to most other companies I've worked for. Our service jobs stay in the US and can't be sent to India or China.

    Cons

    We recently had an increase in healthcare costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay committed to customer service and providing a good work environment for employees. Don't lose sight of what made Waltham a great company.

    I worked at Waltham Services

    Pros

    Benefits, training is very good, some independence.

    Cons

    Some very unethical senior managers. Morale has been going down hill the past five years. Used to feel like part of a family but at the end just used and abused and no one would listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and ethical. Make your employees feel like part of the team. Be realistic when setting budgets and goals.
